Christie, Deanna Michelle  
Deanna Michelle Christie July 21, 1969-December 8, 2014 It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Deanna Michelle Christie. She passed away on the morning of December 8th at the age of 45 in Hareid, Norway after a year and a half battle with cancer. She is survived by her parents, Clark and Judy Christie of High River, her sister Danielle Pearson (Wade) of Mossleigh, her brother Matthew Christie (Karrie) of Okotoks, her 3 nieces Lyndsey, Codey, and Macey Pearson, nephew Hudson Christie, and numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. Deanna was born on July 21, 1969 in Calgary, Alberta. After being raised in Mossleigh on her parent's farm, Deanna graduated from County Central High School in Vulcan in 1987. She then enrolled at The University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1988 and graduated as a Mechanical Engineer in 1993. Deanna's work took her to places like Zurich-Switzerland, Madrid-Spain, and Ghana-Africa. Over the course of her life her travels took her to an astonishing 48 different countries. One of those countries was Norway. She fell in love with Norway and it became her home for the last 5 years of her life. Deanna was a fiercely independent person who thrived on the excitement and joy from her extensive travels. She didn't always go along with what most people would consider the norm and she stayed true to her beliefs and values right to the very end. The following is an excerpt from a conversation she had with a friend upon learning of her cancer diagnosis: "The day I found out that my chances of long term survival were not good I did a mental review of my life, had I done all I really wanted to do? Was there anything I wanted to see/experience in case the worst should happen? And, you know what? There was nothing, which felt really good. I lived my life the way I wanted to. The times I went against what was 'normal' and 'accepted' weren't always easy but I'm glad I did it and I got to experience a LOT of interesting things along the way. There were really no big regrets. Any small regrets were of times when I didn't take a chance and instead played it safe. It was a good life." A Celebration of Deanna's life is being planned for January 10, 2015 at 2:00PM at the Mossleigh Community Hall. Family, her current friends, and past friends are encouraged to attend.

CLARK, Stewart  
CLARK, Dr. Stewart Cecil M.D., Ph.D. 1938 – 2014 We sadly say goodbye to Dr. Stew Clark, a gentle soul, good companion, and dedicated physician. He will be remembered by his relatives, and his many long term friends from Sundre, Calgary, the west coast, and further afield. Stew was born in Berwyn, Alberta to Cecil and Cissy Clark. He graduated from Nanaimo Senior High School on Vancouver Island in 1956, and received his bachelor's degree (1960) and master's degree (1963) in pharmacy, and his medical degree (1967) from the University of British Columbia. He completed his medical internship at Montreal General Hospital in 1968, and in 1974 completed his Ph.D. in pharmacology at the University of Calgary. Prior to his retirement, Stew practiced at both the Addiction Centre and the Sleep Centre at the Foothills Medical Centre. His recognized expertise in the field of drug abuse and addictions resulted in him serving in a variety of consulting and research roles with the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, and the Canadian and U.S.A. governments. He will also be remembered by his colleagues and friends in Missouri, U.S.A. for the times he served as Chief of the Alcoholism Section at the Harry S. Truman Veterans Hospital in Columbia. Upon retirement Stew moved to his country home outside Sundre, Alberta. He appreciated the friends and neighbours there who welcomed him into their community, and helped him manage the challenges of country life. He also greatly valued the support of the medical professionals in Sundre who were so committed to his care, and for the past three years was very fortunate for the kindness and support of everyone at the Carewest Garrison Green facility in Calgary.

CORBETT, Annona Maie  
CORBETT, Annona Maie (nee Linkletter) Annona Maie (Linkletter) Corbett of Calgary fell asleep in the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at the age 99 years. Anne is predeceased by her beloved husband, Willard, and her seven brothers and one sister. Though her immediate family (Kerwood, Garry and Mella) was small, she leaves behind an immense host of loved ones that celebrate her life. Anne's life reflected her strong faith and love in everything she said or did. As a school teacher (Albert Park), she was beloved by the hundreds of children who passed through her classroom. As a friend, she was always more than ready and willing to lend a helping hand. As a mother, she loved her children with a deep and eternal love. Anne exuded love to everyone she met. She never met a person she didn't love. She only saw the good in everyone around her. To know her was to love her. Even when her body started to fail and she was not able to do the things she once was able to do, she never complained. She always saw the glass half full and never half empty. She knew that she was a "child of the King". We are blessed to have had Anne as part of our lives. She taught us what it truly means to live a life of love and faith. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at a visitation held at FOSTER'S GARDEN CHAPEL, 3220 – 4 Street N.W., Calgary (across from Queen's Park Cemetery) on Sunday, December 21, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A Graveside Service will be held on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Those wishing to attend should meet at the main cemetery gates of Queen's Park Cemetery at 12:45 p.m. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Skyview Church of the Nazarene (meeting at the Rocky Mountain College), 4031 Brentwood Road N.W., Calgary on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via the website www.fostersgardenchapel.ca .

CROSS, Joan  
CROSS, Joan July 9, 1924- December 14, 2014 Joan Somerville Cross died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, December 14, 2014, in Calgary, Alberta. Born in Montreal, on July 9, 1924, as the youngest of four, she discovered very early that a feisty and adventurous spirit would take her far. Her lifelong passion for learning and her acceptance and belief in the potential of all were important in establishing her role as the matriarch of her extended family. Her generosity and strength of spirit are ideals for us all to follow. Family, friends, and new acquaintances all deserved her time, attention, and love. Having a bad day? Just dig deep and find 'your funny side up'. "How can things not improve?" and "I'm not complaining, just explaining," helped her through the many ups and downs that life brought her. Predeceased by husband Jack, and children Diana and Johnny, Joan will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Jackie Engstrom (Ed) and Sara Cross Moulton. She was Granny to Carol (Dylan), Barbara (Janne), Kristen (Jordan), Sandra, and Heather (Matt); GG to Seamus, Zoey, Piper, Xavier, and Mary Jane; and aunt and great-aunt to many loving nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held in Montreal at a later date. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared through www.evanjstrong.com In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Canadian Red Cross, (170 Metcalfe Street Ottawa, Ontario K2P 2P2 Telephone: 613-740-1900, website. www.redcross.ca ).
